    The clear feeling that the hotel people were interested in doing everything they could to make my stay comfortable. They did go out of their way to make sure that this was insured. To my surprise I even found a very nice breakfast at the reception at 4.20 in the morning...

    no negative points at all.. One only has to know that there is a flight of (easy) stairs one has to go up with the luggage before reaching the reception. For me it was no problem but it could easily be....
